“Karim Elbana holds MSc. in Solar Energy and Environmental Engineering from Sweden and Germany (scholarship by the Swedish Institute). He did his master research in a girls' school in a rural area in Tanzania (through Engineers Without Borders) where he investigated sustainable electricity as a tool for women empowerment. Karim was politicized young and has been fortunate to learn from the student movement in Egypt. Most recently he has investigated at TU Berlin energy transformation scenarios for the MENA region. For the past year, he has been actively involved in YOUNGO so he participated at COP24 in Katowice, SB50 in Bonn and COP25 in Madrid. He also represented the constituency at the High-Level Dialogue reviewing the UN Decade of SE4ALL. Karim now joins the SDG7 Youth Constituency with his heart set on helping support grassroots feminist movements to grow their power and build strategies to reduce the energy-access gap."
